A fast-paced space shooter with screen-shaking explosions and a mystery at its heart. First you think it's an arcade game: simple controls, powerful upgrades, and intense dogfights. But you’re living the same day over and over, trying to find out who the enemy are, and what they want.

 Nominated for Best Game at BAFTA Cymru 2019

As Olivia Bergen – a flight lieutenant that has become separated from her fleet – you only know Cycle 27. You live it over, and over, and over again. And if that wasn’t bad enough, every time you drop from warp they are waiting for you.

You don’t know who they are or what they want. You just know you’re the only thing between them and home. So you get better, faster, stronger. Maybe one of these Cycle’s you’ll figure it out. Until then, you can only keep dying.

Key Features

Kaleidoscopic space combat — Power slide your way between more bullets than any lesser pilot could handle. Nothing feels better than using your ship’s gun to propel you through enemy-infested space as you grip the trigger ever tighter.

Upgrades — Beat your personal high score in a run to unlock upgrades. With 45 possible configurations, customise your ship and master new tactics to live just a little longer.

Evolving story — Uncover the secrets of why you’re stuck in Cycle, why they’re hell-bent on destroying everything you love, and just who they really are.

Epic original score —A powerfully atmospheric mix of modern orchestral and retro electronic sounds by Jordan Rees. (Composer of trailer music for The Mummy [Universal Pictures], Mother [Paramount Pictures], The Defenders [Marvel Studios]).


“...we kept coming back to it again and again - and so will you.”

Nintendo Life

“I can’t help but recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a healthy, arcade-style challenge.”

I played this on Steam. Very cool, but I never figured out how to win it.
